Bill Hubbard Shows His!
3rd Submission in the Series “Show Me Yours and I’ll Show You Mine”
This was a great idea until I tried to take a picture of my “corner” and came to the reality that I actually have four. My wife is an artist and a writer. I paint. We live in a 2 bedroom apartment which has her sketches and my paintings on 8 walls of three rooms. I even have a painting in my bathroom. So, I’ve attempted to show it all in two pictures. For the last few months I’ve been painting out side quite a bit but now, the the advent ofhot weather, I’m back in my corners till fall.
I try to paint with a pallet limited to Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Deep, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Deep Red, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue and Permanent Rose and get away with it when I’m outside and have limited space. However, in my corner I’ve found good use for Daler & Rowney’s Flesh, Yellow Ochre and Ivory Black. I paint mostly with large bristle flats and rounds but, for detail utilize a few sable points and a couple liners for rigging.
My mother taught me the rudementaries of oil painting and I took several of Bob Benham’s adult ed courses at GHS. I also fished with Emile Gruppe and was fortunate to be invited to tag along for a number of his outings back in the 1960s. I lived on Cape Cod and fished and painted with watercolorist, Anton Stetzko who introduced me to waer colors. When I moved here to Florida I started seriously to paint again and took up Acrylics which I now mix with pen.
